One Layer Challenge Week 211

What a bumper bundle of cards we had submitted for our Birthday Challenge last week. 
Not all kept solely to the specified colours and not all were exactly Clean and Simple, with a decided lack of white space on many submissions, but we were delighted to see so many new contributors and hope that they will become regular LIMettes, thereby becoming accustomed to the parameters of CAS.

I would like to reiterate our thanks to our fabulous Guests and sponsors and will be publishing the list of winners during the week.
Now for this week's challenge!
One Layer 
and the theme is

Please remember, lots of white space, NO additional layers and minimal embellishments! 
If you are unsure of our definition of a one layer card, please check the Guidelines page at the top of the blog.

This little chap is from Penny Black, coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils, blended with a little with a paper stub and some blending liquid. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. I twinkled the heart with some Glamour Dust. I find that pencils, even having been blended, don't bleed through to the back of the card front... and important consideration with a one layer card.

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: In Print & Build a Bug
MFT Die-namics: Coffee cup & Blueprints 15 (hearts)
I made my own stencil from these sets and inked up 
with Gold Delicata ink then heat embossed with Ranger Clear EP
The bees wings are winked with stella; with 2 pearls from Hobby House for eyes.
I have revolted against the popular Valentine colours for my 'love' card.  It is inked with brushstrokes using Aquatints.  The sentiment is by Unity and again, it is not quite the standard sentiment - but it does mention love as well as a food close to my heart lol!

We are looking forward to seeing your creations!
